Disappointing. And to see Boll pretty much apologize in the penalty box... I don't know what to say. Apologize for what? You didn't do anything! Guy needs to watch some Charles Bronson - someone murdered your whole family revenge movies.
After watching the review several times I give it a draw!Nothing landed here until Boll lands a couple late ones on the ground! A little dirty!
What should be a scene of merciless, unmitigated rage quickly becomes an apologetic reality tv show as Boll attempts to whisper sorry for nearly decapitating Malone and pushing his face through the ice.
Boll didn't land a single punch except for a few cheap shots thrown when they were already on the ground. Malone's weak jabs were the only things that landed.
Not seeing how people are calling this a beatdown. A lot of scuffling and jersey jabs, Boll's two hay-makers both miss and then they go down. Boll looks to throw a couple cheapies after they fall. Draw.
what the hell is going on in the NHL , guys apologizing , patting each other on the back , holding each other up so they don't bang there heads on the ice , I think i'm going to puke! why don't we just put cell phones in the penalty boxes so they can tweet , text each other and watch miley cyrus videos together , makes me sick !
Boll gave Malone the beatdown he deserved.
I give it a draw....NOTHING landed until Malone was already down and those punches by Boll do not count. Obviously there are a lot of Malone haters on here seeing how the votes are going. And really, a voting of a 4??? How about a 2
Wow lots of columbus fans commenting I guess...Its unfortunate, and you are right to be upset at losing a great captain in foligno, but the hit on friday night was clean as could be. elbow tucked, skates on ice, shoulder to shoulder. The head action was whiplash. Malone made sure it was clean, and the NHL department of player safety handled it perfectly. Hockey is a tough sport sometimes..
normally i would lose respect for punching a downed opponent, but I wish they would have all dogpiled that p.o.s. However Boll must be smoking bowls, cause he is getting pretty damn soft. This will be his last year I'm sure...
Boll lands a few on Malone, regardless of where or how effective they were. So Boll wins, but it wasn't much in the way of retribution.
Boll hammered Malone... A win is a win, even if the best punches come while one guy is down on the ice.
Boll stands up for his injured Captain properly here and gets the win as expected.
Giving this one to Boll with a 3 spot for the effort of trying to launch an A bomb, even though he missed on all three, and was definitely cheap at the end. Looked like Boll told Malone that he had to??? WTF?
malone fought boll's teammate dubinsky and his performance was at least disappointing but he lost clearly tat least to a better fighter tonight
Malone absolutely deserved this beatdown since the NHL wouldn't step up and disapline Malone from the dirty hit to Foligno last night. Just wish Boll would have had more time for more punches.
Was the penalty box discussion not just Malone asking if it's done and Boll saying "yes, I had to go after you?" or something along the lines of those or am I missing something? As for the fight props to Malone for answering the bell here The fight was really nothing... Boll basically only landed on the ground. called it a draw but, a fight that was necessary
That was no apology.....he was letting him know that it was square for the hit on Foligno.....win for Boll
Malone got Boll-ocked :o He didnt apologise, he did say 'I had to' but didnt catch what Malone said, I can lip read a bit.
WTF...I am not sure that I have ever seen a guy do that in the penalty box before. If Boll played for Brophy and did that Brophy would have gone to the penalty box and kicked his ass! It did look like Malone called him an azzhole. It was punk stuff for sure...but never, ever apologize in hockey for how you fight! Freaking win the fight and go the box like a bad ass! Boll did neither! So much for a revenge fight. Boll lands nothing...not even the cheapies he throws with Malone down...LAME CHIT JARED!
Boll beat Malones Azz,, no question about it.. A total beat down.
Malone should have started punching when he had Boll down right at the beginning. He was too courteous, and once Boll got up, it was over. Malone was just trying to hang on the whole fight. They should give an extra 2 minutes for anyone using those pitiful jersey jabs. Jersey jabs are for pu$$y fighters just like rap is for people who couldn't sing. EDIT: As for those of you that said Boll apologized in the box, what, you guys can read lips?
